Linkin Park Releases 'Carpool Karaoke' Filmed Days Before Chester Bennington's Death

Linkin Park have released a video of the band's carpool karaoke that was recorded just days before singer Chester Bennington's death. The footage was captured on July 14, just six days before the singer's death.

In a statement addressed to Bennington, it added: "We're trying to remind ourselves that the demon who took you away from us were always part of the deal". The video sees Chester behind the wheel with Ken in the passenger seat and band members Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn in the back. "I love it!" Bennington said to Jeong, when he suggested a band name change. It features the band driving around with comedian Ken Jeong as they rock out to hits from Linkin Park and other bands, per Variety, with Bennington giving Jeong a lesson on his trademark "scringing" (a combination of screaming and singing). It featured Bennington teaching Jeong how to do his classic scream.

It is a bittersweet video with Chester saying "this is probably the greatest day of my life".


At one point, they even pull over to do a fun dance routine on the street.

The episode begins with a message stating that its release has the blessing of Bennington's family and is dedicated to his memory.

As of this writing, the video has already garnered almost 6.5 million views.
